:idea: mabe you guys should make one completely out of galvanized pipe so you don't blow your ass up! just an idea...


Not quite. Galvanized pipe is not only an overkill for a basic combustion, it's expensive, and completely unnecessary.

well i think that it would be a better idea for say propane or something like that. and it isn't that much more really mabe a few bucks, make just the combustion chamber out of steel and the barrel out of pvc.

Steel is nothing short of completely unnecessary for anything less than a hybrid gun, or an extreme pressure pneumatic.

How is extra cost, weight, less ergonomics and aesthetics better?

All it adds is extra safety, which isn't needed considering the materials and pressures used. It's total overkill.
